    Wide Angle Zoom lens (Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L)

    I was intrested in this particular lens http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/co...8&modelid=8940 but after reading this article http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Ca...0D/index.shtml, I am not too sure anymore.

    The problem, according to the article, is that the lens works well with Full Frame Canon Cameras like the 5D. My XTi is not a Full Frame.

    So now I am wanting a Wide Angle Zoom lens but I have the XTi and dont know which lens would be good. Any suggestions?

    This one seems to fit the bill. Same price but Not L. Hmmm. I may have found the lens.

    Any suggestions?

    i didn't go read that article but I'm guessing they're probably saying that because it won't actually be a 17-40, it'll be a 27-64 due to the crop factor so it's not really as wide as it would be on a full frame. there's also the 10-22 if you were looking for something wider. my suggestion would be to try them out and see what you like before you buy. a lot of local camera shops rent glass precisely for this reason or you can go to a place like rentglass.com and they'll ship it to you.

    Nice. The 17-85 with IS seems good too. Hmmm

    Rentglass.com may get a customer soon.

    Sigma AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS looks so tempting. Has the wide angle i need and Obtical Stabilizer. Nice!!

    The non OS 18-200mm from Sigma is intended for the APS-C sensor and looks like so is this. Nice!!

    Do not go for the 18-200. You won't get your optimal image that way. There is too much range there.

    In terms of ef-s lenses, the 10-22, 17-85IS and 17-55 f2.8IS area all great lenses.

    L lenses , 16-35 and 17-40 are both great.
